YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Officials from Mahoning and Mercer Counties won't ask for federal assistance to help clean up Tuesday's storm damage.

A tornado touched down leaving a trail of damage through those communities.

A tornado and high winds also damaged homes and trees in Lackawannock Township in Mercer County.
